Real Butterscotch Pudding [TWD]

Gretchen Noelle

My love of food was cultivated early on by my family but has come alive while living in Peru. During the 12 years of living in Lima, Peru, I have also enjoyed numerous trips to other areas of the country. Here on Provecho Peru you will find Peruvian recipes in English, American favorites prepared overseas, news about Peruvian Cuisine and interesting tidbits about life in Peru.

    Glad you liked the pudding. It was rather decadent wasn't it? I didn't make it in the food processor either. Too many horror stories! Gorgeous photos as always!Have a wonderful holiday!Donna Spatulas & Corkscrews

    I just loved this pudding so much! I don’t think I would ever use a food processor to make pudding, just too complicated! :)

    Gretchen, you sound like me – my husband thought it was a bit boozy, but I didn’t (and I don’t drink!). I thought it was a great recipe, too. Those little banana cakes look wonderful, by the way.

    Can’t wait to see what’s coming! I love the rich color of yours.

    This looks heavenly!

  21. Mrs. L says:

    I love butterscotch pudding but it’s not something that I find served in most restaurants. But honestly “butterscotch soup with banana cakes”?? Sounds even better! YUM!

  22. Cakelaw says:

    Looks great Gretchen – I am sure that your guests enjoyed their “soup”. The banana cakes served with it are just gorgeous.

  23. Vera says:

    The pudding looks luscious! Merry Christmas and the wonderful holidays, Gretchen!

    This looks delicious. And I have to laugh…I just finished making the Butterscotch Tartlets from the “Baked” cookbook – my first time making butterscotch too — and I have a feeling it’s not going to harden properly either. The recipe said the ‘scotch should be very thick when removed from heat, but mine did not thicken up even though I left it on for about two minutes longer than suggested. Just put in the fridge for the firm-up so we’ll see. Thanks for giving me a good idea for “soup” though in case I find the same! :)

  27. Kevin says:

    That butterscotch pudding looks really good! Now I am craving some…
